Skip to comments.Senator Lindsey Graham Censored by GOP
Posted on 11/11/2009 2:52:36 PM PST by MaxCUA
Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican with a maverick streak, has been censured by local Republican Party officials in his home state of South Carolina. The executive committee of the Charleston County Republican Party voted unanimously on Monday to rebuke Mr. Graham for many of the positions he has taken that do not represent the wishes of the people of South Carolina, such as: passing a cap and trade energy bill, bailing out banks and granting amnesty for illegal aliens. Lin Bennett, the chairwoman of the local party, told the Charleston Post and Courier that party leaders were fed up.

Censured not censored.
Don't need a decoder ring for this one:
Maverick = Liberal = Rino = Demonrat in a dress = Voters ripped off.
I have NO PROBELM with this:
...Republican Party voted unanimously on Monday to rebuke Mr. Graham for many of the positions he has taken that do not represent the wishes of the people of South Carolina, such as: passing a cap and trade energy bill, bailing out banks and granting amnesty for illegal aliens.
Now, only if Steele eould stop being a RINO and do the same in the party at large.
Finally some good news....and kudos to those GOP in South Carolina tired of Grahamnesty’s nonsense.
Now, the people of SC need to run out the treasonous anti-American known as Lindsey Grahamnesty
What roasts me is they just reelected him [sic] last year.
He needs to be, probation for the Rino Flue, we need to stop the infection.
well they ought to censor him too if we are being really honest...I mean, he IS sort of an idiot,..
It is about time the SC GOP started getting control of their party. They need to purge scoundrels like gramnesty, sinfraud, and Inglis, while elevating their true heroes like Wilson and DeMint.
He must be voted out for a true conservative.
Voters in S C just voted him back in last year........we are stuck with him for another 5 years.....
Now, if only the national party would have the cojones to throw this fraud out!
I live in SC, I’m a registered Republican, and I can assure you that Lindsey Graham does NOT reflect MY views in any way, shape or form.
He will NOT serve out his term.
The GOP controls the legislature in SC and can put a recall provision on the ballot in 2010.
He is gone.
or, in the words of Sheila Jackson Lee... sensor.
That would be fantastic, hope they do it...
“Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican with a maverick streak....”
Oh don’t tell me, another “maverick”.
Lindsey pulled the ultimate bait-and-switch, passing himself off as a conservative Republican long enough to get elected to the Senate twice. Now that he’s come out of the closet as a DIABLO, he’ll count on Democrat votes in South Carolina to keep him there. It’s too bad Sanford apparently self-destructed. It will take a Republican candidate of that visibility and stature to even have a slight chance of crowbarring Lindsey out of this seat.
Here’s praying . . . .
Worthless. We had a chance to support the Ron Paul Democrat who opposed him in November but passed it up. He has five more years and people have short memories.
Get out of the Left’s pup tent, Graham! He’s a gonner.
Hate to tell ya, but there were 4 Maverick brothers.
Don’t see where this was bumped to the SC list.
